Following the recent server crash at Danger, Microsoft and T-Mobile technicians have been working to attempt to recover personal data that was lost. One million users of the Sidekick, a phone that is popular with many U.S. celebrities including Paris Hilton, were informed that all their personal data had been lost as a result of a fault with the servers.

Microsoft use a "cloud computing" service to store huge amounts of personal data files on a remote communal server rather than on the users physical device.

At the time it was thought that all the data was permanently lost but now Microsoft have recovered much of the personal contacts and so can be accessed by the owners again.

The method for restoring Sidekick contacts is outlined below:

Before you start you need to have an active Sidekick Data Plan. For the users who have changed their data plan they will be required to revert back to their Sidekick Data Plan to access their lost contacts list.

How to Export Your Contacts.

1. Go online to My T-Mobile and login.
2. The next step is to select "Restore your Contacts" (Recover and restore your Sidekick contacts).
3. When the Contact Recovery page opens, click on the green button titled "Download Contacts"
4. You will now see the "Download Box" popup.
5. When the download has completed "save" the user contacts file to your Desktop. and close the box.
6. Your contact address book has now been recovered and you're ready to import it back to your Sidekick device.

Importing Contacts back to a Sidekick.

1. On returning to the T-Mobile recovery page you'll need to click on the green button titled "Restore Contacts"
2. Your address book screen will be now visibly open.
3. Select the "Browse" button and navigate to the contacts file that you previously downloaded to your desktop.
4. When the file has been attached select "Import" at the bottom of the Address Book page.
5. You'll begin to see your contacts gradually populating the page. This is a good sign as it means that your contacts should now have been returned back to your Sidekick.

That's all there is to it for now. All that's left to do is check your Sidekick and you're all set to get back in contact with your friends and family again.
